Painting Progress

I have now almost completed the detail painting on the model. All that is left to do is paint straps and stowage which will be done later. Decals are also on and the model has had a coat of klear ready for the weathering. I used Acher details for the ammo boxes and these look superb, you can even read the writing! The union jacks are extras not supplied in the kit and added just to make it slightly different.

The light lenses are currently receiving some attention with the rear of the lenses painted silver and tamiya clear colours to finish them off. For the headlights I will be using some discs of silver foil to represent the interior of the lights.

At Last! Some Progress!!

Hurrah! I hear you cry at last an update! I have finally managed to get back to the modelling bench after some trials and tribulations plus a slight loss of the old modelling mojo but as Austin Powers would say,"I'm back baby, yeah!!"
After a nice primer coat I have used tamiya NATO black, flat black and field grey for the main colours and them started adding all the details using vallejo colours. The seats are painted using tamiya dark grey.

It's all horribly clean and tidy at the moment but never fear this will soon change!
